Description:
This workshop explores the benefits and opportunities available when integrating afterschool programs with affordable housing communities and nonprofit CDC resident services programs. OregonASK works with children and youth in diverse school and community-based settings to provide a wide variety of extended learning opportunities and care during out-of-school hours. Afterschool programs spark student interest, inspire them to dream and thrive in school and life in general. Afterschool programs typically respond to community needs; help build safer, stronger and smarter communities; and involve community partners to support locally-driven solutions.
